Your “About Us” page is one of the most important pages on your website and often one of the most frequently visited. So it makes sense to get it right!
In fact, after your homepage, 52% of visitors want to see your “About Us” page (source Komarketing).
The truth of the matter is for so long our (yes, meaning us… Five by Five) “About Us” page has really sucked!
Writing this blog post was a way of finally getting this sorted. It gave me the kick up the bum to finally get this content written.
This is low hanging fruit for most businesses as it is a way of for setting the tone for who you are. To create trust, build rapport and most importantly, position yourself as a company they want to do business with.
Having sat in on a cracking Dent workshop facilitated by the Valerie Khoo she ran us through a template that just made perfect sense. It’s beautiful marriage between great copywriting (dots all the I’s and crosses all T’s) and excellent web design (builds credibility and converts).
So here goes. It has 3 main sections:
- Your four core points
- Your four supplementary points
- Your call to action
Let’s start out with ‘your four core points’ using Five by Five an example:
